Smoky Canvas (053)

Dior Smoky Canvas (053) 3 Couleurs Tri(o)blique ($63.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio that features a shimmery gray, bright silver, and deep black. The three shades coordinated well together to create a monochromatic, gray smoky eye. It performed well, though they’re classic and common enough shades that you’ll definitely want to check your stash for similar shades first!

Smoky Canvas #1

Smoky Canvas #1 is a medium-dark gray with neutral-to-cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, drier consistency that was a little dusty in the pan but only had a touch of fallout when I initially applied it. It applied evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have "bold colour impact" where a "little product goes a long way" and the "powders glide on." Most of the shades in the Trios were pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to work with. Some of the very sparkly shades had light to moderate fallout during application and sometimes during wear. The texture ran slightly more powdery, slightly softer than average but was never messy to work with or prone to sheering out. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Smoky Canvas #2

Smoky Canvas #2 is a bright silver with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and smooth without being too dense or too softly pressed in the pan. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and lasted nicely for eight hours on me.

Smoky Canvas #3

Smoky Canvas #3 is a deep black with a satin sheen and neutral undertones. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, so it was easy to work with. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff in a single layer, which wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Once upon a time, many makeup years ago, I favoured these kinds of shades as a workwear look, as I was into wearing a lot of black, white and red. And besides, there wasn’t much else available to us in Aus. either at the time.
Now to the palette: it is lovely, although I do think that Smoky 1 is far too dark for a middle shade between the silver and the black, it needed to be a much softer grey.
I do agree with you Christine that all three shades, particular the two darker ones, are abundant in lots of palettes, so I think this trio of shades is probably more redunant than the others in the series.

A nice dark, mysterious trio, though that shimmer shade should have been lighter, I think (unless they were deliberately going for “degrees of black with one highlight shade”).
